Program Overview

For Adult and Youth Swimmers of All Ages

The Y’s private swim lessons give swimmers of all ages individualized attention and a more flexible schedule for busy families. One-on-one or buddy packs (one instructor, two swimmers of similar skill level) available.

In a private swim lesson:

  • We tailor the curriculum to your specific needs.
  • We work with all swim levels, from beginners just learning to swim to elite athletes who seek swim coaching for triathlons or lap swimming for fitness.
  • Swimmers learn at a comfortable pace.
  • Flexible scheduling allows instructors and participants to coordinate their schedules to meet any day and time


  • Private Lessons: Y Members: $80 for 4 30-minute sessions/Non-Members $160 for 4 30-minute sessions.
  • Semi-Private/Buddy Pack (one instructor, two swimmers of similar skill level): Y Members $55 each child for 4 30-minute lessons/Non-Members $125 each child for 4 30-minute lessons.
  • All YMCA of East Tennessee locations currently have long wait lists for private lessons.  Check back in the future to request private swim lessons, or join a group swim lesson.
